The City of Arvada has removed the fencing surrounding the new Arvada Skate Park, located at 12920 W. 72nd Avenue, due to overwhelming demand by skaters!
Arvada Skate Park has been under construction since the spring of 2011. Two Contractors have been working on the project: Team Pain, a skate park design/build company based in Florida, was hired to design and build the 40,000 + square foot skating surface. Team Pain's project manager, along with most of the workers on the skate park, are Colorado residents. Urban Farmer, a local contractor, is the general contractor assigned to complete the park infrastructure improvements, which include grading/drainage, entrance road and parking lot construction, irrigation, landscaping, signs, lighting, site furniture, shade structures and other miscellaneous items.
A few of these items, including landscaping and the park's lighting system, will be completed this spring. Urban Farmer and its subcontractors will be accessing the park periodically, and skaters should be aware that some park areas may be closed temporarily in order to bring the park to completion.
An official grand opening is being planned for the spring of 2012.
